I have been working at Vecna Technologies full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I really like my coworkers, they are smart yet approachable. The work is challenging and fun. We do lots of activities after work. I joined the food club and we find nice places to eat and drink, and sometimes we cook together. There are great benefits, they cover everything, even a full time massage therapist, and they let me spend 4 hours of my workweek doing community service. The main thing is that they really care about the employees.

Cons

The company really pushes health and fitness. Sometimes (not being a very health conscience person myself) it can be uncomfortable. They don't cover full health care premiums for smokers unless you are enrolled in a smoking cessation program (but they do pay for it). I complained about it at first because it made me self-conscious about my smoking, but honestly, I need to quit, so maybe this will do the trick.

Advice to Management

I don't really like the open seating, I would prefer a cube, but the rest of the people on my team seem to want open seating and I would rather be near them.

    I have been working at Vecna Technologies full-time

    Pros

    I agree with the person who disagreed. I like it here a lot. I've worked for lots of different companies, and Vecna is easily the best.

    Cons

    Things move pretty fast. If you don't stop and take a look around every now and then, you could miss something.

    Advice to Management

    The smoke free campus is totally the right thing to do even if some people don't like it.

    Pros

    Its great here. So many of my friends from MIT also joined, so sometimes I feel like I never left except I don't have to do psets anymore. We hang out all the time after work. I can take the T to work. I like the massages and the free food.

    Cons

    Can't really think of anything. Sometimes people bring their pets to work, and I am a bit allergic.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more of my MIT friends.
